Energy Crisis and Resource Crisis forces us, now more than ever, to revise our strategies. No client and architect can ignore this new territory.

Plastic Pavilion

In Madrid International Fair Venue (IFEMA) there are more than 80 fairs per year, involving more than 20,000 companies occupying a total area of more than 1,200,000 m2 each year. Floor is received and should be left blank, before and after each show, this means that are used and disposed over 1,200,000 square m2 annually of textile floor.

Considering that most of the textile floor (carpet exhibition, rubber flooring, vinyl, etc ...) is served in rolls, each roll covering approximately 120 m2 and each roll it is covered with a plastic and these rolls are used along the 80 annual fairs. The aim of this project is to use only wasted material (plastic cover) to build a sustainable pavilion and create an exhibition space and connection according to customer needs.
